Happy New Year

Happy New Year of the Yin Fire Rooster.  


Along with the new moon on January 28, 2017, we will officially welcome the Chinese New Year of the Rooster. Many of us have already begun feeling the energies of the rooster year.

​Every Chinese Year is considered Yin or Yang.  With this being a Yin year, more attention will be directed inward.  There will be more energy for balancing things within yourself, within your home, within your family and within your community.  Every Chinese Year is also associated with one of the 5 elements.  The Fire element brings with it energy for action, initiation, physical activity and expressions of the heart.  There will be plenty of opportunities to express kindness within our families and our neighborhoods and communities.  The more we share ourselves in kindhearted and compassionate ways, the more we and the people around us will benefit.


 As shared by Karen Abler Carrasco, Essential Feng Shui Practitioner with the Western School of Feng Shui,
